Kiwanis Pancakes
are festival tradition
If it's Saturday morning at the Plymouth Fall Festival, it
canmean only one thing.
It's time for theAnnual Kiwanis PancakeBreakfast.
No one can actually remember exactly when theKiwanis
began serving the hot-off-the-griddle pancakes as a club
fundraiser at the festival, but nearly everyone remembers
enjoying the treats and coming back formore.
The club members begin serving breakfast at 7 a.m. and
continue until noon or so, depending how many folks are
still in line and how much batter they have left. The break-
fast includes pancakes, butter, syrup, sausage, juice and cof-
fee ormilk and is one of themost popular events at the festi-
val each year.
The griddles and other equipment, along with the tables
and chairs, are set up the night before in The Gathering, the
covered structure across from Kellogg Park and next to the
Penn Theater, and the fresh batter mixed, sausage cooked
and coffee made by the Kiwanis members before the
crowds start to arrive.
Tickets are priced at $6 in advance and $7 at the door
and, as always, children younger than 5 eat for free with an
adult. Tickets are available fromMark Riegal (734) 718-6176
